Galway Lions Club

Welcome to Galway Lions Club

Formed in 1972, Galway Lions Club, located on the West Coast of Ireland, is part of Lions Club International, the largest service organisation in the world, whose mission statement is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.

The work Lions clubs undertakes can differ by location, the section on club projects gives a good flavour of what we do in Galway.

Lions Clubs International began in 1917 and is now represented in 185 countries. There are forty four thousand Lions Clubs throughout the world. Helen Keller charged Lions in 1925 to become her `Knights for the Blind”. Lions Clubs have built Eye Hospitals in the Third World and millions of people have had their eyesight restored by cataract surgical procedures.

The work of the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) spans a vast range of services including fitting out hospitals, clinics, libraries and schools and rebuilding communities after natural disasters, floods, tidal waves, earthquakes etc.
